    "So many games nowadays rely on flashy graphics and animation rather than well thought out or executed plots. Not so with A Dark Room. Yes, there are no graphics and it is all text based but it will really challenge your mind to question what is going on and to engage with the game with your brainpower. It is very intriguing once you get into it and will make you appreciate all the hard work that goes into the plotting and choices given."

    "It's not graphically amazing at all. But it is a fun game to "choose-your-own adventure". It has a decent storyline and reminds me of those books I used to read as a kid!"

    "Remember the choose your own adventure books you read as a kid? Well with A Dark Room, they're back but scarier and more geared towards adults. So addicting and so fun, such a great browser game. t's also a really great time killer on a plane or bus too, you'll be immersed in it and time will fly by."

    "Yes, this game does indeed start simple. It's a text-based game, so it only really solves the problem if that's something you're into. It doesn't solve the problem for everyone, only a specific niche group. Most people wouldn't bother with this game."

    "A Dark Room is a great way to pass time on the Internet. It's just like the old choose your adventure games I used to play when I was younger."

    "This "game" isn't really a game. It is a text based question and answer system. It provides no entertainment value."

    "This game manages to really poke on your curiosity because with each answer you click, you anticipate what's gonna happen next. More choices are given as the story progresses and you continue on wondering where the game is gonna bring you. It's mysterious and definitely unique!"

    "A Dark Room is one of the best browser games that i have played. Yes it is also available in other platforms but i prefer playing it on a browser instead where it all started. If you are looking to spend an hour or two laughing while being slightly abused then i am recommending this for you to play. "
